Democrats tap Fargo radio host

QUICK TAKES

November 01, 2003|From Associated Press

Democratic lawmakers in Washington are asking a radio personality in Fargo, N.D., to take on Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other conservative talk-show hosts.

Ed Schultz, who earlier considered running for governor, has been tapped by national party leaders for a talk show to start in January that would strive to counter what he called the "conservative mantra that's being jammed down the throats of the American people."

Democrats have pledged about $1.8 million over two years to get the show off the ground, Schultz said. He said a half-dozen stations are looking at whether to carry it.
